In 2019, Sunrise Park Resort hired Swaback, an Arizona architecture firm, to develop a master plan for the resort. This master plan includes a “Base Village” with a new base hotel, pool, ice skating rink, hillside ski-in cottages above the “Sugar” trail, a high-altitude training center, and more!
Along with the Master Plan from Swaback, we also have development plans for a new high-speed chairlift/gondola from the base of Cyclone Circle to the top of Apache Peak. This new chairlift will feature a mix of 6-passenger chairs and 8-passenger gondolas. With the addition of this lift, we plan to utilize the lodge at Apache Peak for summer activities, such as events and weddings.
